Republicans do not talk like this - film on North Korea

Today I find that a local nonprofit is showing:

North_Korea:_Beyond_the_DMZ (2003,
56 min.) The tiny Democratic People's Republic of Korea is continually demonized
in America, but what is life really [!!!] like there?

Well, you could start with "Worse_than_1984" . . . or just look up the Wikipedia_article.
The story of a young Korean-American woman visiting relatives in the DPRK and
interviews with ordinary people and scholars illuminate how North Koreans
view the fall of Soviet communism, natural disasters that have brought
famine and power shortages, and their country's dangerously hostile
relationship with the U.S.
Shheeesshhh. . . I'm in favor of Mexican immigration, neutral on a number of social issues, and I can barely look at a @#* Democrat . . .

What, no puppets?

"Anti-war" protesters demonstrate_in_St._Paul, block rush-hour traffic on University Avenue.
AAEI? Who do you think you are, the American_Enterprise_Institute?

Where are the damn puppets? And "blocking traffic" in the path of the future Central_Corridor? Is that all you people can do any more?

No one can hear you, Moonbats! Go back to your parents' basements!
